Guildford Cathedral goes green

United Kingdom:

To mark the recent Surrey Day 2021 event, Philip French and his team from Peachy Productions lit up Guildford Cathedral in resplendent green, using a combination of Robe Pointes and LEDBeam 150 moving lights.

Having lit the cathedral on several occasions last year, the Peachy crew were delighted to be involved again with a goal of ensuring that the cathedral became as visible as possible from as far away as possible. With the 48m-high bell tower being the tallest part, that is where the Pointes came into play, with two fixtures deployed in four different positions down both the long sides of the building, eight in total, all in pole position to hit the tower.

“We needed the power and punch of the Pointes to do this properly and get the impact we wanted,” explained French. “They were absolutely the right fixtures and did a great job of making the dark red brick of the cathedral – which is not the easiest to light – shimmer in electric green in the night skies.”

The LEDBeam 150s supplemented a projection of the Surrey Day logo onto the front façade of the cathedral. In addition to these moving lights, a selection of LED PARs, battery-powered uplighters and some battens were used for the installation, which ran for two hours after dusk.

The wired lighting fixtures were powered from a 63A supply located to the left of the building, which was the only source, so cabling had to be run all the way around the enormous Grade II listed building.
